Blisters on my Toes...

When I was in college all my toe nails fell off. No joke. Too much time either running or being in cleats on the soccer field killed them all. They turned black and fell off.

Now they are raised up off the skin and break if they get too long. And with this new running kick, they daggum hurt. Did I mention I am getting huge blisters on my 2nd toe on each foot. My freakishly long 2nd toe.

I have ugly feet. It's g-ross.

Monday after work I drove to the gym, got out of my car, walked into the gym, then turned around and walked out. It was such a beautiful day I just couldn't make myself get on that treadmill. But when I got home I laced up my Nikes and went for a run.

Yay!!

I ran 3.3 miles in 50 minutes. Not great. But I'm okay with it. I didn't stop at all. I ran the last 3/10 of the mile holding my side because of the worst cramp ever to show it's face. I think I need to eat better. Four cookies all day does not a well balanced meal make!! Wednesday I hit the gym for a quick 30 minutes on the elliptical before I headed out to dinner with the besties. Tonite I hit up the gym for 20 minutes on the elliptical followed by 20 minutes on the treadmill and some upper body weight lifting.

Awkward moment of the day: the ex best friend was at the gym today. I have not run into her in public since I saw her last June. We didn't speak. I was booking it on the treadmill and she was in and out so quick. I know she saw me. It's kind of sad we're like that. I don't want to talk about it because it's sad... Oh well.

The scale is not budging. But I will not let this get me down!!

I need to do a weekend update with some pics, but I can't get to my computer!! I'm using Norm's netbook right now so I don't have to do any mountain climbing.

Headed to DC this weekend to see the parents. Super excited!!

The toes sound kind of painful - sorry! I am super paranoid about my toenails and getting an ingrown toenail so I am very picky about them. I can't even get professional pedicures because it scares me too much.

Sorry to hear about the ex-best friend. That is hard! I hate when friendships end. I have a few from high school that I guess just ended because of distance, but those are still weird when do you see them.

OUCHIE for your TOESIES!! That sounds painful. You may have toes that aren't perfect but I bet you have some killer legs!! Runners legs are the best.
